Elektron Overbridge Will Get You Onboard!

Elektron, known for their quirkily different and innovative products have recently announced a new project called Overbridge. What is Overbridge? Well, Elektron claim that you will soon be able to use their hardware products as VSTi’s in your favourite DAW. Yes, you did read that correctly! Apparently, Overbridge will allow seamless integration of your Elektron hardware via a single USB cable. Multiple analog voices can be recorded to individual tracks on your DAW and all settings will be stored and transferred back to your hardware when you re-load a previously saved project.
